How Secret Cabin Works

The way it works is you book at this discounted rate but your cabin number, cabin category, deck, and location will only be allocated at the time of ticketing – 3 weeks prior to sailing. You will have a guaranteed booking but the gamble is you won’t know where you will be accommodated until you receive your cruise tickets. The minimum fare is based off a category 5 inside cabin, however if lady luck is on your side, you stand the chance of being accommodated in anything from an Inside cabin (Cat 1-5) up to an ocean-view cabin (Cat 6-10) for the same price – the cabin assignment is random and cabins are allocated subject to availability at the time of booking.

Fine Italian and International cuisine make mealtimes a multi-cultural experience, whilst rooms are fitted with modern amenities for comfort and convenience.
